Santa Cecilia Orchestra

Mr. Roper, from the Santa Cecilia Orchestra, shared his knowledge of the tuba with us today.  He brought his 16 feet, 30 year old tuba with him.  He also brought a 9 feet tuba and he has a 170 year old tuba at home.  Tubas have been around for 180 years.  He showed and talked about shells, horns, and bones being used as musical instruments.  He played a composed piece for us titled Effie and Effie sings a Lullaby.  He invited us to see a free concert at Occidental College.  If we come an hour early, we can try playing some instruments that they'll have out on display.
